In the world of the Republican party, November 6, 2012 must have never happened. For the rest of us, we know that to be the night that President Obama was overwhelmingly re-elected President of the United States. Also, Democrats gained back some seats in both the House and the Senate.
Despite those facts, people like Michele Bachmann continue to live in a delusional reality where somehow Obama became president through some sort of magic trick.
During a conference call sponsored by TeaParty.net, Bachmann once again proved that she’s one of the most ridiculous members of Congress our country has ever witnessed.
Rep. Bachmann asked if our country is “going to be totally devolved into a dictatorship under somebody like Barack Obama,” and claimed we need to get back to being a “constitutional republic.”
Funny, isn’t one of the key aspects of being a “constitutional republic” the fact that elections matter? Because that’s something Republicans seem to not care about.
How exactly is President Obama acting like anything close to a dictator? A health care bill was passed by Congress, signed by the president into law and upheld by the Supreme Court. Then the American people re-elected the president who signed that law and gave more seats in Congress back to the party which supports the law.
Yet somehow expecting this law to be implemented makes President Obama a dictator? This is an “impeachable” offense? Are you kidding me?
You know what should be illegal and an offense worthy of being removed from office? The actions taken by Speaker of the House John Boehner in blocking the House of Representatives from being able to vote on a clean version of the resolution the Senate sent over before the government shutdown.
Talk about acting like a dictator. One man is keeping the House from voting (and passing) a resolution which the Senate has signed off on and the president would immediately sign—which would reopen our government.
But President Obama is acting like a dictator and impeachment should be discussed?
With every comment I read from Michele Bachmann I question whether or not she’s actually legally sane. I really doubt she is. This woman seems so batshit crazy that it’s astounding she somehow got elected to public office. But her position in Congress is a true statement on just how radically delusional tea party Republicans truly are.
Because she’s extremely popular with the tea party. In fact, in many ways, she’s exactly what the tea party wants our government to be comprised of. Which is a terrifying thought.
I really don’t believe Michele Bachmann has a clue how life works, let alone our government.
